There are so many devices that you can use to automate your home. From using an app, to a smart speaker, or maybe even a universal remote, there’s a huge market for to control how your smart home works. The limits of our capabilities were being able to talk to our smart home. But what if I said you had the option of not having to do anything to automate your home how you like it? What if it just knew what you wanted prior to entering your home? The Intelligithings RoomMe sensors aims to cater these capabilities to you, but only if you’re a creature of habit.
Setting these sensors up will require some legwork.
Getting your smart home to know exactly what it wants to do with RoomMe will require some tedious preparation work. If you thought this was something you could just buy, connect to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and then have AI read your mind, well, think again. RoomMe sensors are synced to your smartphone, and you have to install the sensor in every room you want automated. The sensors are quite big and reminiscent of a smoke detector. Each one is wireless and powered by two D batteries that last up to three years. After installing the sensors, you can download the the RoomMe app for your smartphone and begin to sync all other smart devices you have in each room. Your smart home isn’t going to start turning on when you walk into a room without you telling it what to do first, of course. You’ll have to set your preferences to how you want things to be automated on the app. For example, when you get home from work and walk into the living room, you can set it to where the smart TV turns on, smart blinds open all the way, and the temperature sets to 72 degrees.
You’ll have to have your phone at you on all times though.
Since the RoomMe doesn’t need a specific smart home system to integrate with, it does require that it syncs to your Bluetooth via smartphone at all times. So, if you walk into your room without your phone, the commands won’t respond and you’ll have to voice control or manually turn on your devices. How awful.
It can read who is in the room.
It can sense which individual is in a room based on their smartphone. If your loved ones have preferences as to what they like when they get home or in the kitchen, they can customize their own automation settings. Does your loved one not like it when you leave the lights on too bright? Don’t worry, you can set priority levels if there is more than one person in the room, giving power to your loved one if that’s what you prefer. But if you ask me, I can only imagine this would start a few arguments though. However, if you can’t decide who should take priority, RoomMe can set control to be met in the middle of both preferences.
How precise can the technology of the RoomMe be?
We don’t know yet since it has yet to be launched, but it is set to be released in May of 2018. You can pre-order a starter kit for $139 on their Indiegogo campaign page.
